It can be difficult to identify if your cable is CCA or 100% copper visually. The Flame Test is a quick and easy way to test your cable in the field and make sure you’re installing compliant copper cable.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) states that all Category (UTP & STP), data, security and fire alarm cables must all comply with AS/CA S008:2010.
